CHELSEA HIT A POOR RUN OF FORM BEFORE CL FINAL
Thomas Tuchel will have to rethink his tactics and line-up ahead of the Champions League final against Manchester City. Chelsea have not enjoyed the best run of form after losing the FA Cup final to Leicester City and losing against Arsenal and Aston Villa in the league. Tuchel’s squad selection has received criticism lately mainly due to the inclusion of Jorginho who has severely underperformed lately.
Meanwhile, Manchester City have returned to winning ways after the Sky Blues were crowned champions of England following their 5-0 demolition against Everton. The Sky Blues seem to be favourites to win the European Cup after already winning two trophies this season. On the flipside, Tuchel continues to struggle to put together his best starting eleven.

ASTON VILLA FINISH THEIR SEASON ON A HIGH
Aston Villa have finished 11th on the Premier League table following their 2-1 victory over Chelsea. The Clarets have performed admirably this season under Dean Smith and have managed to defeat the likes of Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool and Wolverhampton Wanderers.
The Lions will now be tasked with the duty of holding onto Ollie Watkins and Jack Grealish next summer. Watkins has managed to score 14 goals along with five assists in his debut season in the Premier League. The club’s hierarchy will be very impressed by the way Dean Smith has made use of the squad since they were on the brink of relegation last season.
